The Tale of Two Gado-Gado Vendors

In this entry, I’d like to present two vendors of gado-gado. The first one is a legendary vendor in Kelapa Gading (where Thatha grew up), and the second one is famous in Puri (where Riri grew up).

1. Gado Gado Lely, Kelapa Gading. Ibu Lely is the one sitting at cashier table, wearing purple t-shirt.

The food and drink menu are quite extensive. The food menu is quite interesting, such as Rujak Banci (banci means sissy). 20140822_124631

The gado gado uses a quite unique ingredient: jantung pisang20140822_12472020140822_124900

I saw cincau hijau on the drink menu, so I ordered it since it’s one of Riri’s favourite traditional Indonesian drinks but I have never tried it before. 20141009_130020

2. Gado Gado Bu Bietje, Puri Indah. According to some sources, Bu Bietje started selling gado gado about 20 years ago. I really liked the peanut dressing, as well as the very fresh boiled vegetables. Sadly, there isn’t any emping20140823_144324

It was so refreshing to drink fresh coconut after eating gado gado. I like drinking the water, but I’m too lazy to scrap the flesh. 20140823_143945
